Gemer region

On the cusp of Slovakia's southern frontier, Roznava lies in what was once a mining region rich in gold, iron, copper, where Renaissance carpetbaggers built fortunes by pittin German know-how and Slovak labor against the landscape in the quest for one.

Mother Nature created a plethora of rare natural formations and karst gems hidden underground in the Gemer region near Roznava. Of the 12 caves open to public in Slovakia, five lie in the Gemer region.
